john mccain. i told you it would come to this and now we've got the proof on camera. a party that spits at its leaders listens only to the loudest, angriest person in the back row. boehner is nothing to this crowd. it never heard of kantor. mitch mcconnell, a nobody. what matters to the republican far right are the few to dare to be even further right. now the huffington post editorial director. the 2013 version of john mccain version took on his constituents who looked like a room full of right wing 2010 mccains with their anti-immigrant build a fence talk. here's a bit of his exchange, if you want to call it that, with angry right wing tea partiers. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop 'em? because the only thing that stops 'em, i'm afraid to say, and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop 'em. >> the border is 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how many troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think would be required, but i'll give you expert information that shows you that probably maybe you're talking about t
any more. john mccain and lindsey graham because every damn sunday, you turn on the sunday shows. who has their ugly mugs on t.v.? john mccain and lindsey graham on every one of the freakin shows. sometimes more than one. but if they are not on fox, they are on abc. if they are not on ab. c, they are on the "meet the press." if they are not on "meet the press" they are on quite state of the union." they are always dumping on everything obama is doing over and over and over. there are 100 senators. right? alt every sunday do we have to here that idiot lindsey graham from south carolina who has become the biggest scourge of the republican party, the u.s. senate and john mccain who ish something maybe to say 20 years ago but he doesn't have today. it's the same ol' gabble. there they were again yesterday, trotting them out, lindsey graham was on face the nation, and john mccain on fox news sunday. so lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think
. instead is he going to be secretary of defense. >> by that measure, john mccain should have been president in 2008 up against a guy who had no experience in executive branch and experience in the military. >> -- and no experience in the military. >> i have the highest regard for john mccain. is he a friend of mine. i actually went and visited where he was held in captivity with com sam johnson. he is an amazing man and i like him a lot. this is whether hagel is going to be secretary of defense. based on who he is and his service to the country. i never voted against israel in his 12 years in the senate. i think he is somebody who wants peace, he he is strong. he will keep us out of wars. i think that we need somebody in that position. >> here is what bill kristol wroited today, chuck hagel isn't a first rate candidate for secretary of defense. he isn't even a second rate candidate. has there ever been a more embarrassing confirmation hearing than hagel for a measure cabinet position. for a minor cabinet position or subcabinet position. we don't know of one. congressman, i understand the wh
put it beautifully. john reese, in fact, it deserves a lot of praise. here's john mccain. >> john mccain did what he could to get reelected. and now he's confronting his old self as he argue ts with the guy he was a few year as i go. and john mccain has never been good for hiding his anger or contempt for people he considers in his way. >> he said to build that dang fence. >> joan mccain is the perfect expression, the perfect embodiment of the kind of schizophrenia. >> he's also a guy who wants to get deals done. >> he can't do that. he's in many ways, an admirable senator. let's take a look at je krkkel hyde here. he once committed the crime of working with ted kennedy. watch this. >> they are going to be on medicare, welfare and food stamps. and you know it. >> again, sir, you're not telling these people the truth. they mow our lawns, they care for our babies. >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> it's not a fence? it's a banan
. >> with john mccain, the town hall meetings. there's a reason why a lot of more centrist or less yahoo republicans did not run for president last time. there was all the crazies and mitt romney and if you saw the people turning out, as we keep playing those clips from the republican debates, the audience was one that they don't care what michael gerson says about republicans need new poverty programs or new ways to structure the government to make it -- >> environmental programs. >> environmental. they don't care. a lot of this for them is cultural. they want to go back to whatever they think the good old days were. they don't like the influx and rising -- >> you give advice to a guy like john mccain and you say, yeah, you have to become a little more today a little more open to the hispanic population in your own state, but the minute he does this happens. here he is at this town meeting. this is what happens when the republican party follows the vice of the thoughtful people like michael gerson. he's a former maverick taking on the current mavericks. let's watch. >> why didn't the ar
points on the board. john mccain or senator graham is how do i put a point against him. the democrats make a long speech and how do i put a point for him. these used to be a long time ago let's find out how he would manage the defense department. let's find out what his values are that might be important for us to know. none of that happens. it's all about making points. >> what's clear is that president obama miscalculated a bit thinking if i put forward someone with an "r" next to their name, i'll have an easier time here. clearly that's not the case. but i also think that, you know, john mccain certainly did his bit for his country and languished in a prison of war camp for 5 1/2 years. i think john mccain and lindsey graham's concerns are real. in the end they probably will not carry the day, but in a critical time with the threats we face, it's totally legitimate, whoever the nominee was, to be grilled on what their point of. >> one final issue before we go. big night, the super bowl, the ads have already been sold, $3.8 million to $4 million for a 30-second ad. this year a littl
in arizona. >> john mccain, town hall meeting. there is a reason why a lot of mo more centrists did not run last night, all of the crazies, and mitt romney and if you see turning out as we play the clips from the republican debate, the audience was one -- they don't care what michael says about republicans need new poverty programs or new ways to structure the government to make it work. >> environmental programs. >> they don't care. a lot of this for them is cultural. they want to go back it whatever they think the good old days were. they don't like the rising influence -- >> you give advice it a guy like john mccain, you say, yeah, become a little bit more today. open to the hispanic population in your own stays. which he is aware of. this is what happens when the republican party follows the advice of the thoughtful people like michael gerschwin. a former maverick taking on the current maverick. let's watch. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid it say, and it is too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop them.
mccain. we've talked about john mccain and chuck hagel. once very close friends. mccain during the chuck hagel confirmation hearing was one of the most poignant, maybe ted cruise was the most poignant, but one of the most pointed critics of haling. mccain not putting his name to that letter. it's -- this seems like a foregone conclusion here in that this is much more for the public record and for history's sake why this letter was sent. >> and one more thing. before we leave, hagel, is this whole stir yesterday where. >> did you take money from the friends of hamas? >> it's lake-effect like this was a star claim we are bsh it got some legs, and it was all about theater. when you had all those senators, you know, people like cruise questioning him, talking about the friends of hamas, i mean, they were out for blood when it came to hagel and how to make a design in some ways. >> without even checking factual basis for their questions. >> no. >> you can ask anything and create a soundbyte, and people pick it up in social media, and it's off and running. >> there was some degree of
-scale blizzard. john mccain probably would have preferred to have been on the golf course. he was at a town hall meeting yesterday. he was for immigration when president bush was in the white house. when he was against immigration reform under president obama. the first term. now, he's back and for immigration reform. his constituents weren't too happy. one of them challenging him about why they don't build a fence. >> build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> that's not a fence. it is a banana. we're putting up a banana. about $600 million worth of appropriations that we have. >> bill: mccain has gotten so grumpy. when he ran for president in 2000, at those town hall meetings, i covered him in new hampshire. i traveled on that bus with him. he was so good at those town hall meetings. he was on top of it. people challenged him and he always had a good answer. little sense of humor. >> it's not a fence. it's a banana. >> that's one way to handle it, i guess. >> bill: stick it in your ear. cindy here to start off the hour. little bit
's not the case. but i also think that, you know, john mccain certainly did his bit for his country and languished in a prison of war catch for 5 1/2 years. i think john mccain and lindsey graham's concerns are real. in the end they probably will not carry the day but in a critical time with the threats we face it's totally legitimate whoever the nominee is to be grilled on what their point of. >> one final issue before we go. big night, the super bowl, the ads have been sold, 3.8 to $4 million for a 0-second ad. this year a little something different. we've seen so many before the game. my favorite is going to nominate it first, the volkswagen come on be happy ad. ♪ ♪ took my love >> wait. >> i like that one, as well. jorge, your pick. >> godaddy.com between the model and the -- went on and on and on. i think it was really great and i think it's going to be commercial. >> there's bar ralphly and she's going to lip lock with that young man that you see right there. >> all right. well, the mercedes ad with the devil, willem dafoe as the devil caught my attention mostly because of the background
on various positions hagel has taken in the past. he had one con stentious explanation with john mccain. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder had this country since vietnam? >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that. >> if confirmed, hagel, will replace leon panetta as defense secretary. he'd be the first vietnam veteran to hold that position. >>> at this hour, a search for a missing teenager in takoma park, maryland. this is a picture of 16-year-old vanessa hendersonment she was last seen on hudson avenue about noon yesterday. police believe she's wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and pink and black nike sneakers. she's about 5'6", 130 pounds and has a birthmark under her right eye. she has an acoustic guitar with her. if you have any information, call police. >>> virginia congressman jim moran's son will not face voter fraud charges in connection to his father's reelection bid. arlington county police and prosecutors say they will not charge patrick moran. an und
:30. >> bill: if they call a filibuster and john mccain said he would not support a filibuster, it looks like there would be 60 votes to stop the filibuster. >> that's right. >> bill: can you stop -- do you know, can you stop a hold? if inhoff puts a hold on, that's not a filibuster. that's a different animal, right? >> it's a delay. it's a delay tactic. so i think it merely pushes it off into the future. >> bill: but my understanding one senator can put a hold on somebody's nomination and until that senator agrees to lift it, there's nothing the other senators can do. is that correct? >> we saw that a lot with coburn putting a hold on everything, on legislation, on spending legislation. the pressure here will be fairly remarkable. >> bill: to go along without a secretary of defense. >> i think pressure from the pentagon, military leaders the public not having a guy in charge of the pentagon. it's not going to be sustainable for them. >> bill: the center for american progress has a lot of ties to the white house. so you're going to be live blogging tonight. what does that mean? >> he's going
'm reading it. i want to. yes. when the soviets like john mccain tells you you belch too much, soak and spew too much fire, you know you've got a problem. >> she likes it. that's a bad day. that's a bad day. >> this is not painful for her. >> like three, four days later, she's still laughing. >> when someone says something about you, that's a bad day. ted cruz, a republican freshman in the senate out front and center in his republicans' efforts to josh chuck hagel has a problem. he's an honoree piece of work, just six weeks from arrival, he's already known for nay saying and his nitpicking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect. or at least courtesy that isn't his me kirks er. he was head of the harvard debate team. >> princeton or harvard. >> a very bright guy. >> a little too big for his britches. >> people that knew him before said you would like him. >> he has been kicking shins, being comparely rude and i guess maybe it's all a marketing ploy to raise the most money among conservatives nati
scheduled to vote on the nomination of chuck hagel tomorrow. senator john mccain says, i will not participate in any walkout of tomorrow's committee vote, which i guess is what counts for statesmanship among republicans these days, but as to whether mr. mccain will support his one-time friend, well, that remains a bit of a mystery. >> we've still got some more information. >> are you going to support him for defense secretary? >> i will see the rest of the answers to his questions, but certainly i have very grave concerns. i think we need some more information. >> of course, senator lindsey graham brings up an excellent point, one i'm sure more republicans will soon be asking, why stop at chuck hagel? >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. yes, i'm going to ask my colleagues just like they did with john bolten, joe biden said no confirmation without information. no confirmation without information. >> right. i mean, no one at the white hous
taylor project, bob franken and boris epstein, republican strategist who worked on john mccain's presidential campaign. good to see all of you. >> hello. >> how are you, craig? >> goldie, we'll start with you. ladies first. nate silva, of course, of the "new york times," he is picking "argo" writing in "the times" and "zero dark thirty" may have won slightly more critical acclaim but the critics do not vote for the oscars and the insiders have, and there's been absolute consensus among insiders. it would an enormous upset if it were to lose. i know you're not an insider, but if you had to pick which politically themed movie out of these three, "lincoln," "argo" and "zero dark thirty," which of these three do you pick? >> i almost always go with nate silva. difficult to go against 538 in any situation but this time i go with "lincoln." >> really, daniel day-lewis did a masterful job. >> how about you, boris? what do you think? >> i've been getting crushed by nate for a long time dating back to the election. also republicans have been having a tough time going against him, but i'
. it is my honor to introduce senator john mccain, who needs no introduction. >> but he always appreciate it. [laughter] i thank senator enhofe for his attention tot his issue. he pointed out the devastating effect of sequestration. if it is implemented, it will cut every ship, truck, a tank, research and development across the board. the secretary of defense panetta, a man that i admire greatly, called sequestration a meat ax approach. i think it is important to note, according to one economic analysis, it costs a loss of $350 in full-time direct jobs, 650,000 indirect job losses. that is a lot of jobs. in these difficult times. secretary panetta said, "this has become a very serious threat to our national security." para chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says the same thing. in the late 1970's, after the vietnam war, the chief of staff testified before congress that we had a "hollow army," which then caused the attention of the american people and one of the reasons why ronald reagan was elected to be president of the united states, because of our rapid decline in national defense that
of them are willing to cut people is to do what they would otherwise do. when lindsey gramm and john mccain are saying that this is really crazy stuff, you know there are people both in the senate and house that get it and want to avoid this. anybody on the defense side, everybody knows we have to trim our sails. at least we should allow the secretary to make the decisions as opposed to this crazy across the board. >> talking about the budget issue your state is facing. you had to raise taxes in your state to meet the budget deficit. what is the way ford for governors in this country who are facing similar scenarios? you raise taxes. and other states that is not tenable. is that a mix of spending cuts and tax increases? >> i was the first democrat elected governor and 24 years. the outgoing governor handed me a deficit larger than any other state in the nation representing 17% of revenue. there was no way to cut your way out of it. there was no way to tax arena of it. you had to do both. we had to respect the relationship as the employees and we did both of those things. so much so t
john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary, the democratic senator, going to talk about we need immigration reform? >> i'll let her speak for herself. the argument to make is you're rewarding people out of here illegally. that's not what you should do. there are many arguments against that that i agree with. she's right, the border, for whatever reason, it might be because of our economy. it might be because of increased security. it might be becaus
